In terms of Section 3.59 of the Listings Requirements of the JSE Limited,
shareholders are advised that Mr DL Eggers will retire as Group Finance
Director and as executive director of Omnia with effect from 31 August 2010.
Mr Eggers, 63, has served diligently as Group Finance Director and as
director on the Omnia Board of Directors since 2000 and the Company has
benefited greatly from his commitment and expertise.
Mr NKH Fitz-Gibbon, currently Group Commercial Director and an executive
director of Omnia, will be appointed as Group Finance Director-designate with
immediate effect, assuming a phased handover of responsibilities between now
and 1 September 2010. Mr Fitz-Gibbon will also retain his current
responsibilities. Mr Fitz-Gibbon, BCom (Cum Laude) CA (SA), joined Omnia in
1993 as Group Finance Director, a position he held until August 1999,
whereafter he served as non-executive director whilst engaged in his own
business interests initially, and thereafter as Finance Director Africa for a
UK multinational company. He re-joined Omnia in April 2006 in an executive
capacity as Group Commercial Director. Mr Fitz-Gibbon has a deep
understanding of Omnia, gained over the last 17 years and brings a wealth of
finance and commercial expertise and experience to the position.
The Board wishes to thank Mr Eggers for his invaluable contribution to the
Company and the Group and wishes him well in his well-deserved retirement.
